Should I care? Because at the moment I really don't. Apprently there are 500,000 more secret bugs on our bins.
one bin is quite a lot
was going nuts about this last night. Apparently the government want to charge an extra 5 quid a week for people with too much rubbish in their bins.
I just find it very odd that they would do it in secret.
but they have not considered how charging per kg might lead to an increase in fly tipping and increased littering, 'knee jerk' is the politicians freind, 'thinking ahead/big picture' is not....are they unaware that consumer marketing is responsible for loads of unecessary and annoying packaging, however all governments, whatever hue have had to align themselves as freinds to consumerism....because they are weak and inferior......vote for me

I posted this comment: WHAT THE CUNTING FUCK DOES IT MATTER IF THE COMPANY WHO MAKES THE DEVICES IS GERMAN YOU BUNCH OF CUNTS
I don't think they'll put it up.
of that article, I just knew the tone it would take.
having written that. The fact that a large proportion of the country read shit like that and are affected by the idiotic implications in it has such a detrimental effect on the world.
that of all the ways the government watches, controls and generally fucks the British people, a weight sensor is what is really pissing us off.
bloody hell Britain.
and people buy this newspaper, why ? Are we really a bunch of simple fuckwits that lap this shit up ?
I can just imagine smart arses across the country telling their work buddies "you know the germans are bugging us ? Yeah, I read in in the daily mail. Yeah, I know, the bastards".
I depsair, I really do.
they probably are adhering to a social repsonsibility of many Britons.
and selective censorship. It's the only way.
long before you got hit on the head with breaded cod and got political.
it's an issue which affects society as a whole. more bugs, say I!
"Conservative MP Andrew Pelling said burglars could hack into the computer system to see if sudden reductions in waste at individual households meant the owners were on holiday and the property empty."
why not, like, look in the bin?
